      As the competition is not affiliated with SAE itself, they cannot call it a Formula SAE event. But its the first "full" SAE-style competition in Canada started by some ambitious University of Toronto FSAE alumni. I say full since Toronto has hosted a "Shootout" since 2003, which is just a day of autocross competition. This event runs like a normal competition with static and dynamic portion. They got a 20+ car entry with ultimately maybe 15-16 cars made it to run. Teams from US, Canada, and Finland(!) competed in the 4 day event at Barrie Molson Centre.

      As an alumni from Toronto I figure I should go and check it out so I made it in on Saturday to watch the autocross portion of the event. I believe Finland's UAS Helsinki won overall at the end.

      Barrie Molson Centre's parking lot....its a local hockey arena(lol, insert Canadian joke here), its pretty often use for local autocross....

      To be fair Formula SAE proper used to be, for the longest time, hosted at the lot of Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan. That is a much bigger lot though...

      Nowadays they are usually much fancier and hosted at some apron or paddock parking lot of big race tracks...

      I'll try to link the results after I get them...
